One says the vent makes a mess - uh, DUH! Your dryer is making the mess, not the vent closure. Your dryer's filter screen lets a lot escape, and so it exits the vent closure as it should! If it didn't escape it would clog the vent and cause a dryer fire as air flow is strangled causing temperature to rise in the line.
Another reviewer wrote a book about his brick problems, even complaining about having to use caulking. He also said it HAD to be painted to prevent ultra violet light damage. Well, if caulk is a problem then let it leak air. The heat loss will equal the cost of a case of caulk in short order, but that is the alternative. As for HAVING to paint it, nothing could be further from the truth! Mine, and my brother-in-law's, have been unpainted for many years now with no signs of brittleness yet. But, if you want to paint it, that should take a whopping 15 minutes. Geez, a complainer in every crowd, I guess!
My vent closure has eliminated cold air from entering the laundry room! Opening our dryer door used to feel like opening a freezer door. Our feet would turn to ice in that room until I installed this vent closure!! And the floating cup, despite lint build-up, has maintained a tight air, bug & rodent-proof seal when the dryer is not running. It cleans easily if you have even the slightest mechanical skills.
In my opinion, this product will pay for itself in home heating and cooling costs in less than one season while keeping out rodents and insects. Don't let the naysayers seize the day!!!
I can report that this device significantly improved the situation. The room is noticeably warmer since I installed it. The design is clever - on the inside there is a plastic cap that is blown up when the dryer is turned on, but because it is contained within the plastic housing, it will always drop perfectly back into place, sealing the opening, once the dryer shuts off. Moreover, there is no way lint can get caught in the wrong place to cause the cap not to seat properly. Note that you cannot see this interior cap in the picture, but if you remove the saucer shaped lid on top of the unit (which you CAN see in the picture), the cap I'm talking about is there on the inside, fitting over the tube that forms the terminus of your dryer duct.
I can't comment on the situation of the person (one-star reviewer) dealing with a masonry wall, who needs to get an appropriately sized piece of PVC pipe to use as an extender. What I can say is that I was able to properly install my vent on an insulated fiberboard exterior wall sheathed with aluminum siding in about 15 minutes.Read more ›
Well it's been in steady use since I installed it. Has survived hot summers, driving rain and snow storms. It succumbed though last winter when we had a series of freeze-thaw & snow. It's failure was not directly due to the weather and certainly not a product defect as it is still functioning today. It met its demise when a huge icicle handing from a gutter above let loose and crashed into the top of the vent. Well it still remained attached to the house but the removable cap was cracked in 2 places. I was able to piece it together with some fiberglass resin but it just wasn't the same & didn't hold long.
I think the Heartland model would work better than the other brand with the floating cap as based on my experience, after time I think the cap would fail & remain slightly open. That's all animals would need to get in, a slight opening. The cap on the Heartland model is fixed and not easy for animals to open.
About a month ago we had a period of high winds which blew the cap off & into a neighbors yard. The body of the vent is still attached to the house & unharmed. But the latest air trip for the cap did it in. I couldn't piece it together and I tried unsuccessfully using other plastic caps. So that brings me to shopping for a new vent. I don't remember the exact brand I bought years ago but the name Heartland does sound familiar. and I really like the price this time around.
I only need the cap but it looks like I'll need to buy the whole unit. Overall, a great well performing product.
